Unlovely Marigolds

'African marigolds have about as much freshness as the leather of a new football, without the quality of being easily kicked out of the way'--Christopher Lloyd in The Well-Tempered Garden, 1973

I don't always get my pots and flowers just right.  I am disliking this pot of yellow marigolds more and more every day. We all bought these marigolds up in Lancaster County on our plant-buying trip, when they were small and had the cutest lime green centers--and we all thought they were something special. But alas, as they have grown they have just turned into these big garish puffballs and I really can't stand them. These may be coming out of the pot and going in a far corner of the garden sometime soon.
